SewE-Z Board

March 13, 2012 4 Comments

Keeping with a similar theme to Katie's post yesterday, I wanted to share another knitting tool with you.  Katie gave me this awesome blocking board for my birthday. I highly recommend it.  It's a nice large size size measuring 48" x 30" so it'll fit large pieces or multiple projects.  One of my favorite features are the measurement markers for length and width. It has a grid pattern that is laid out in square inches. It's extremely helpful when trying to block to a specific size. The line guides also help to ensure that you're blocking your piece straight.  The material it's made out of is really stable and sturdy.  The pins can be a bit tough to push in, but I see that as a good thing.  That way my pins won't move and I can get a nice tight block. The material of the board can get wet without rippling or getting soggy.   It sure beats a bath towel! It's gotten quite a bit of use this past week! I am teaching knitting class again today! I hope the girls remember a little something from last week's class.  After today they'll be bringing their projects home to work on over the next week, and then we'll meet again next Thursday.

This looks like a handy gadget. I have to get my vest done in order to have something to block!
